Overview of the RAM 2500 05'.

Dodge makes some of the best trucks on the market. The 5. 9 Cummins is one of the best. It drives great, sounds great, and should easily last 300, 000 miles. Only thing that sucks is the transmission needs to get rebuilt in order to work properly. Overall I would say it is one of the best rams ever built.

- Dalton P

The extra storage and split seats are great.

Great dependable truck. I, love the Cummins diesel engine. It tows great! Love all the extra storage and the fold up seats for extra storage in the back seat. Like how the back seat splits too. Very well built truck and stylish too. I have a new Dodge RAM 2500 and prefer the 2005 instead!

- Lo I

We have always been a Dodge family!

Never any problems. maintenance is consistent, performance is great. I can count on my Dodge always. I prefer a big truck for highway driving, it's safer. This truck is comfortable, has just enough features to comfortably travel. Very spacious for 4 adults, ac and heat work great.
